Investigation into Lupron Side Effects (Leuprolide Acetate)

Long Term Side Effects of Lupron Depot (Leuprolide Acetate

The purpose of this petition is to warn others regarding the drug Lupron (Leupolide Acetate) mfg. by Takeda/Abbott Pharmaceuticals in the hope that further long-term safety studies are done before it disables or kills more women. This drug was originally marketed to treat prostate cancer patients but now is widely used for the treatment of endometriosis, infertility, fibroids/ovarian cysts and even precocious puberty.



Many women are continuing to suffer the side effects long after taking their last dose even though their doctor and the pharmaceutical company states that the side effects should go away within 3-6 months. Side effects include but are not limited to: hot flashes, memory loss, tachycardia, hematura, hypotension, dizziness, insomnia, anxiety, depression, Vitamin D deficiency, constant gnawing bone/joint pain, osteoarthritis, osteopenia, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, autoimmune diseases, blood disorders, cancer and many others including death and yet not one long term study has been conducted.



It is devastating to us that we agreed to take an FDA approved drug under the care of our physician whom we trusted only to find ourselves sicker than you could imagine ---- in pain and unable to get the proper treatment or even believed that Lupron caused our problems.



We hereby request that an investigation be undertaken into the short term and long term effects of Lupron on women. We further request that all outcomes and results of such trials be released and published so that both patients and doctors alike may have the benefit of all the information regarding this drug.

My daughter was prescribed Lupron for CPP in 2014 and has received monthly injections for almost 4 years. I have been repeatedly assured that there would be no long term side effects. I am just now realizing the risk I have taken with my child's health. Had I have known even the limited information I know now about Lupron, I never would have given it to my daughter. It's too late for my family, but further research is desperately needed on this drug and it's long term effects on children.

This drug has ruined my sister’s life and I know she doesn’t want a single other person to go through what she has.

Since my last injection of Lupron Depot in May of 2014, I have gone from being a very healthy and active woman to nearly disabled. I have been diagnosed with FIBROMYALGIA, Cyclic vomiting syndrome, hypermobility of the joints, Arthritis, Unexplained abdominal pain, breaking teeth, several strains, fractures, 60 pound weight gain, constant sweating, heart palpitations, memory loss, and feeling like I have the flu every single day of my life. I know I am just one of thousands of sufferers. TAP Pharmaceuticals needs to be held accountable for the thousands of lives they have ruined.

I did this search to find out about Lupron after reading that is now given to transgender children to prevent “puberty” since I was given for fibroids. WOW having had taken this drug back in 1990 I too now wonder what I thought was “old age” (60) is the result of this drug, that was almost 30 years ago and seeing all these other post I cant believe i’ve Never been asked about it, It sounds like we need to stop giving this to children and find a safer option.

I was given Lupron injections for several months in 2008 as treatment for pelvic pain. I was diagnosed 2017 with multiple myeloma, impaired immune function and severe osteoporosis, bone pain. It never did help my symptoms of pelvic pain. There must be a connection.
